This quiet park has fantistic birding. We had Giovanni Bello as a guide and he is fantastic, top notch and very nice guy to boot. Not many people there even though it was the weekend. Some of the best birding is along the road but...More

For someone who wants to enjoy good, easy, safe, hiking, Tapantí is the place. Seeing the Reventazón River totally unspoiled is by far the main attraction of the place. We had a zillion boulders to choose for to rest, walk, jump, and climb (the really...More

We visited the park with a Field Guides birding tour and wanted to be there first thing in the morning so we got a super early start from Rancho Naturalista. After driving a few hours, we arrived at the gate but it wasn't open yet...More

Being from the Northwest, I expected being closer to the one visible waterfall, and there is truly nothing to see near the hiking trails. Flora are the same as the surrounding valley, and hiking trails in various states of disrepair. A must skip.

Entrance fee is 10 USD per person. They give you a little map. You drive your car to the entrance of the trail you want to walk. There are 3 trails. One is a mile, one is 3 miles and the other is 1.5 miles....More

I loved Tapanti Park. The walks are great but very challenging. Especially if it's raining. Not much wildlife about but still very beautiful. Worth a visit Cost 12000 Colones for two of us

Hiked the middle trail, but saw very little in the way of wildlife. A few birds, and then on the way driving out, saw a Coati. If you're not a local, it's $10 per person. $20 bucks for my wife and I, both seniors. Pretty...More

We stayed at the lovely Orosi Lodge and spent a morning at Tapanti Park. We took the two easier trails of the three - both go down to the river. We didn't see much in the way of birds or wildlife, but it was a...More

This is a pretty national park - well worth a visit. We did the river loop trail and enjoyed sitting by the river and throwing rocks into the water. Swimming is not allowed which is a shame as there are some calm areas that looked...More

There are about three trails and we only did a short 45 min loop hike to riverbed. You could get a good workout walking between the three trail heads which are spread out along the park road. I'm not sure the park is geared... More
